Not just talking.  TrueOS, neé PC-BSD, now runs on OpenRC.

So let me tell you about how my recent TrueOS server upgrade broke virtually all of my services on the TrueOS server, roached the X configuration, and now has the system in an un-upgradeable state, to the point that it’s looking like I’ll have to reinstall if I ever want to install software from pkg again.

Oh, and let’s also talk about how FreeBSD has been training people to run services via direct /etc/rc.d/$service script calls, but now you must use rc-service calls, with no graceful fallback.  Got scripts calling the old style scripts?  Too bad.

The grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence.
